(Have I really not posted in three months? Ugh. Well, let’s see how far this December thing goes this year…)
You know those posts that float around social media saying “only 90s kids remember this” or someone else whose adolescence occurred entirely or in part prior to the turn of the century?
Cassette tapes. Getting film developed. Car windows that roll up and down by use of a hand crank.
Yeah, I, a 90s kid, am glad to be rid of all that shit, too. Thanks for reminding me.
Oh, but the next generation won’t appreciate not having annoying things like this anymore because we have digital media files and power windows? Well, good, it gives them more room to find what’s lacking in the current technology so they can in turn improve on that! Yay, progress!
And then there are the posts suggesting today’s kids will never know such bygone things like, say, a Pez dispenser or ending friendships by playing a well-timed Draw 4 card in Uno.
Except they can because Pez and Uno are totally still around, so I don’t know what the fuck these people are talking about. *shrug*
